I'm a bit confused about this part of the rules:
Quote:
If a title is re-released with the same UPC, but different cover images, do not contribute the new images to the original profile.

If the images are "largely different" it's OK to create an alternate version. But what if the images are just slightly different, but the scans in the online profile are from a re-release, is it OK to contribute the original images?

The reason I ask is because "do not contribute new images" is ambigous. Does it mean "do not contribute the newer (re-release) images" meaning that it's OK to contribute the originals, or does it mean "do not contribute any other new images even if they are the original images"?

What's your take?

I tried doing this for the She's All That blu-ray a few years back. The only difference was a "Digital Copy" banner across the back cover and it was rejected. So I am curious as well.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

My understanding was that if something is re-released with the same UPC we just go with the original cover.  If it was never in the database to begin with, then you can only submit the cover you have to hand.

If someone wants to contribute the original cover later on, I would give that a positive vote, rather than a negative one.

It means the former, "do not contribute the newer (re-release) images" to the original profile.
